I have 5 entries. Last year, my saison made it to the Finals. It's funny, I had couple of other beers score higher but did not advance. Good luck to all!!!!

Got 5, 3 beers and 2 ciders.  One is a silver winner last year I'm hoping to bump up to gold.  A couple of my friends are also brewing the same recipe and submitting to different regions.  It would be cool to go head-to-head with them in the finals!

I have a bunch stockpiled to choose from.... Mild, O. Bitter, blonde, Brown Ale, Scottish 70, Czech Dark Lager, IPA, Helles, Bo-Pils, Kolsch.... Just have to see which ones seem to be at their best in a couple weeks.  Will send 5 in though.

Same address as before if you want feedback again...

Mine are going to mostly distinctive so no details here in public.

Good luck to everyone-

Might have to take you up on that -  Of course that hinges on me getting enough time to bottle something!

Skipped it this year.  I don't have anything ready, at least not fresh.  A couple in fermenters but I don't have the energy to try to rush anything.

Good luck with your stout, Jim.  The one you submitted last year was delicious.

Entering for the first time this year.  Got my first choice (Indy), with a British brown that has no prayer of advancing due to me intending on making the caramel flavor too strong. 

I debating on shooting for two entries, but since my Irish red is a little high on gravity, I decided not to.  I kind of wish I had gone ahead and done it for the laughs.

For some reason, the email ended up in my spam.  This is my first time entering any contest outside our co-op brewery
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny

does anyone know if you can use glass bottles with a breweries logo embedded in the glass like Sam Adams?  I thought I saved some bottles for the competition but the only ones I have left for certain beers are in sam adams bottles.

I'm only entering two this year because I don't have a lot to choose from right now. Probably an American Barleywine and German Pils.

Well sounding good for me so far. No one else entering a 28C so mines a shoe in! 😎

Has anyone ever taken both first and last place in a category with the same beer?

Should I have received an email letting me know where to drop or ship my beers? I asked for NY or Philadelphia.

The e-mails started going out...however they said it would be over a few days.  Might want to check your spam folder too, just in case it went there.
